Pickle-ball Inc.

The Vortex 2.0 pickleball paddle is produced with the latest innovation in core technology, PFG2 Core. This proprietary core was developed to generate solid power and control characteristics while decreasing the noise levels typically associated with high performance tournament paddles.

The Vortex 2.0 is Pickle-Ball Inc's heaviest paddle they produce and is specifically made for the player who wants the added weight. They tried hard not to stray to far from the original Vortex paddle design, the new vinyl gives the paddle a reinforced face that will hold up better over time, UV coating to protect it from the sun, and a much sharper appearance.

The Vortex 2.0 pickleball paddle is the highest rated heavy paddle that will take your game to the next level with the same great shape, balance and control of the original.

The handle profile is wrapped with the Gamma Ultra Contour for a more natural grip and increased control.

This paddle is very loud. It's solid and great for ground strokes. The ball comes off the paddle very quick and hard so it's difficult to control the ball at the short game. Tend to pop up too many balls. I have an original Vortex and the do NOT play the same so if you're looking to replace your older Vortex with a 2.0 don't be surprised if it doesn't play the same.

Deflection Rating

DeflectionTraditionally, paddles have been made from relatively rigid, non-compressible material. That is the traditional concept of a paddle and that is why the game is not played with a stringed racquet. Paddles that produce a trampoline effect or an effect similar to a stringed racquet are specifically disallowed.

The following test is one measure of rigidity and compressibility of the paddle. See paragraph 2.E of the Official Rules for additional specifications.

Deflection Test for Rigidity and Compressibility

The test stand is used to measure deflection of the paddle surface when a known weight is applied. The paddle is supported on blocks five inches in length, separated by 5.5 inches measured at the interior surfaces. A dial indicator measures the deflection in thousandths of an inch.

The photo shows a paddle mounted on the test stand. A known downward weight is applied to the center of the paddle with a one-half inch steel rod.

Decibel Rating

The popularity of Pickleball has been increasing at a rapid rate, and players are looking for new places to play in their local parks and recreation centers. Unfortunately outdoor play is not accepted by all, and courts close to residential neighborhoods have been areas of concern due to the "pop" sounds that many Pickleball paddles make when coming into contact with the wiffle ball.

PickleBall.net has conducted a Decibel Test on all of the Pickleball paddles we list, allowing us to show consumers which pickleball paddles produce the least amount of noise.

Decibel Test for Pickleball Paddle Noise

Each Pickleball paddle is tested outdoors in the same environment, with a decibel meter placed 15 feet away from the paddle. An outdoor Dura Fast 40 pickleball is used, and hit against each paddle 10 times replicating Pickleball play.

The number listed is the maximum dB rating recorded during the 10 hits. (lower dB rating = less noise)

This test was conducted in May 2013, on 47 paddles that were purchased from the distributors. Decibel ratings ranged from 79 dB (quietest) to 93 dB (loudest).
